Fierce Flats

This season there’s a huge amount of fierce flats to choose from, so step away from those skyscraper heels and take a look at the chic and comfy women’s shoes for summer

This season’s opinion divider, you’ll either love them or hate them. Flatforms are an antidote to all the impractical sky high platforms on offer at the moment, and are the perfect shoes to go for if you’re looking for some extra height. The heel is barely higher than the platform sole, meaning you get the comfort of a flat but with a more feminine feel. There are so many styles to choose from including everything from floral printed espadrilles to patent Mary Jane’s. Keep it girly and wear these with bodycon miniskirts or high-waisted shorts.

For those looking for something a bit different to the classic ballerina pumps, loafers are an androgynous alternative. Taking over from the recent trend for brogues, loafers are a great day shoe that can be dressed up or down. For a day at the office pair them with cigarette pants, chinos or a pencil skirt. On your days off slip them on with a pair of indigo or black jeans and a simple white tee. They’re women’s shoes you can experiment with by trying vibrant eye-popping color, leopard print and color-block.

High Tops
A great style for those casual, dress down days, high top sneakers are inspired by the sport-luxe trend. This season designers’ have put a feminine twist on sporty clothing, including everything from dresses to parkas and women’s shoes are no different. Opt for high top sneakers in feminine shades of grey or pastel tones. Wear your high tops with skinny jeans and an over-sized tee for effortless cool. Then pair them with cut off denim shorts in the summer months, for a laid-back, thrown-together vibe.
